Where Are The Interviews?
« on: 05 Apr 2005, 12:00:16 »
Quite a while ago Intel Depot promised more interviews. Yet still, there have been two large OFP events. The Beta Testing party and The Mission Editing Competition, but no interviews have been produced with either macguba (beta party), placebo (MEC) or any of the winning authors. I'm a bit tired of going to the front page seeing the same uninteresting talk about 'Mi17 pack released' (a pack which will never be in any mission anyway, due to the addon->mission shortage) or whatever. Those kind of news lack personality.

Just my 2 cents.

MEC interviews are being arranged, I'm just waiting to hear back.

The Beta testing party follow up news items that I had in mind were being held back until everybody had forgotten about it so as to provide an after-party boost, but since you're champing at the bit I'll see what I can do.

Some time ago I also promised an interview with the next 9 scoring mission, but the author's a total wanker so I'm not sure if that one will happen.

Interview me!!! You can interview me about what it was like to be Admin of OFPEC, what the pressure, strain, Celebrity parties and photoshoots entailed, what it was like to jet-set around the world having wild drug fuelled orgies with whores, what it's like having now gone into the British Army, what the training was like, what it was like to have met the love of your life via OFPEC, and how the saga still entails today, and how the stress nearly killed me.

Interview meeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!

Or not. :)

Interviews are always a pain in the arse. I was meant to have had one with Marek, but nothing ever came back from the questions I sent off. Blargh.

Missing you guys!!  :P

Well, Marek's an official dude. He gets paid for this kinda stuff. Those guys are weirdos.

I'm sure anyone of the community (like General Barron chatting about ECP) will more than just answer the questions. ;)

Aye, fair point, but we'd been communicating, and he'd agreed to do it, and never got back with a reply. :) Not to worry, I'm an understanding, forgiving kind of guy......................................................................................

You could pinch placebo with a tweazer and see if he budges and gives Marek a nudge  ;).

I do remember however Marek giving a interview to ofp.info and to that new OFP2 sometime ago , cant see him not giving you guys one? Maybe you didnt follow up on it , maybe he forgot and you guys simply left it at that considering it as a negative?

Hurt at such a suggestion that 'Left it at that'.

I pursued that blighter for weeks!! :)

However, that was over two years ago now. I think it's a bit late to chase those particular questions up!!

.... another 'wankers' interview  :P

I guess it was informative for those not involved or not in the know of the 'MEC'. Nothing new for me there but i'd have liked if you'd popped a few OFP2 questions in. :)

There was an OFP2 interview not that long ago, although I'm not sure where.   There isn't anything to say at the moment except its still 06, don't count on it being Vietnam and nobody has any idea whether it will appear at E3.
